We know that we it comes to desserts, ice cream is one of those that's hard to beat. No matter how many layers you put on that cake, when given the option most people will opt for a scoop of ice cream over anything else. But we've got one dessert that ups the ice cream ante: semifreddos, and it's not at all popular enough in this part of the world.

Semifreddos are an Italian creation that taste something like frozen mousse. It's normally a combination of equal parts ice cream and whipped cream that are semi frozen. But we just like to think of it as a little bit of heaven. The best part about semifreddo recipes is that you can easily make them in your own kitchen. So, get to it with the recipes below.
